  1. The Quran is full of hate speech and calls to violence against those who reject Islam.  Why not turn a mental bomb that has stunted intellectual and societal growth in the Middle East for 14 centuries into an actual bomb?  At least the terrorists were being honest.

  2. Now where are the condemnations and rioting from these muslims now that their holy book was desecrated?

  3. I sincerely hope that the koran was not burned during this attack – otherwise we can expect worldwide riots , protests and killings.

  4. Which Quran they used? Of Sunnis`? Or Shiyas`? Or somebody else`s? 

  5. Previously, Muslims around the world are hell bent on calling for JIHAD against some retarded US preacher who wants to burn the Quran

    Now the Talibans put a BOMB into a Quran and killed a governor in Afghanistan, so why are the Muslims SO QUIET?
